"There is such a powerful eloquence in silence. True genius is knowing when to say nothing, to allow the experience, the moment itself, to carry the message, to say what needs to be said... When you can sit in perfect silence with someone, you truly know how to communicate."

Richard Wagamese, Embers

Our mission as a spirituality centre continues to be
"To encourage individuals and groups to explore and restore the energies needed for personal, communal, and world transformation."

Learn the language of dreams and do dream work in a non-threatening and safe space. Your dreams can reveal areas in your life that require self-care. They can enlighten you about problems with which you are wrestling and reveal your part in promoting the healing of relationships. Facilitator Laurie vandenHurk

Many cultures and faith traditions mark the coming of the new light into the world. On this night we gather to pray, light the fire and walk the labyrinth together for peace, and then warm up afterward with shared finger food snacks and a hot drink.
